Have you ever thought about who controls your dreams? In Dream Police, you have just that…Cops. Joe and Frank are police officers of the dream world and what an interesting world that is.

This book started off like a typical cop story. That is until they stepped outside. There is a dragon getting brought in for questioning. Yeah, I said a dragon. Joe and Frank are heading to a call where a shifter is resisting authority. I was all like, “What the hell does that mean?”. After they got to the apartment, there was a man crying because he accidentally killed his cat. Joe talks to the dead cat. Once again, HE TALKS TO THE CAT! The cat wasn’t supposed to stay dead. Joe had to convince the cat to stick to the plan of the dream set in place.  That is what the Dream Police do. Make sure the dreams you have go the way they are supposed to go. The cat is the shifter. Shifters are people in the dream world designed to shift to whatever is needed in your dream. Some creepy looking thin dudes with masks show up but their services are needed. Joe and Frank move on and you get to see and understand more of what the Dreamscape is. After a quick bite, they run into a man in a lucid state. It is quite interesting how this particular man can act in this state.  The thin men show up again but this time their services are needed. Turns out the thin men are Nightmares. I wouldn’t want to be there for that. The ending had me raise an eyebrow. Not quite sure what is going on but it is a dream world so I guess anything could happen. One question info have is does the Dreamscape have an Elm Street?

I almost passed on this book but I am glad I didn’t. What an original concept. I was sucked right in from the start. The book was very pleasing to the eyes as well.  The art and colors were done beautifully.  I can see how this could be a fun book to get into. This opening chapter laid out the groundwork of how Dreamscape works while throwing a curve ball at us too.  I am very interested in seeing where this series takes us.
